Israeli forces demolish shops in Bethlehem-area village

Jan. 5, 2015 3:45 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 8, 2015 10:28 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday demolished several shops in a village near Bethlehem, a Ma'an reporter said.

Bulldozers destroyed Palestinian shops near the entrance of Hussan, with Israeli soldiers claiming the structures were built without permits.

Earlier Monday, Israeli forces raided Hebron and demolished a house under construction, locals said.

Local sources told Ma'an Israeli bulldozers demolished a house that was being built by Abd al-Rahim al-Jaabari in the Ein Bani Sleim area in eastern Hebron.

Israel rarely grants construction permits to Palestinians in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and regularly demolishes structures built without permits.

Israeli bulldozers demolished at least 552 Palestinian structures in the West Bank in 2014, according to the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
